I have received so many lovely stories from Angels and the wonderful friendships they have formed from our swap I thought I’d share with you. I hope for most of you this was your experience also.
‘Hugs to Helen,
Helen, I just wanted to take the time to thank you soooooo much for organising the Angel swap last year, I was fortunate enough to have been given 2 great people in the swap, one my Angel and one whom I was Angel for. The Friendships that have developed from this are so precious, in fact the person who I was Angel for has a family crisis to deal with, it developed during the time of the swap and they have a battle ahead of them. I have met up with this person and some of her lovely family and have decided that she will need an Angel all year so have decided to send her a surprise each week, some weeks it’s a skein of pretty variegated DMC and other weeks it’s a swatch of fabric and other times l’ll make something. This friendship would not have developed without you having put us in touch in the first place so THANKS a MILLION’
Then some others from truly exceptional angels like this one -
I’’ve finished my mission of “Rescue Angel”.
In these days Kris Meares, Michelle McConachie and Val Dickinson have received my goods (I hope for them that receiving my package was a little pleasure in these bad days. I know that Michelle and Val live in the outskirts of Melbourne, very closed to the fires).
Monday the package for Cara Bonner left for the final destination, and this morning I’ve sent the package for Angeline Van Wijlen (in a couple of days they will be delivered).
Kris has already put the photos of my gifts on her website (http://tagalongteddies.blogspot.com) , while Michelle and Val do not own a blog, neither me, then I send you photos of all the work done (Sorry, I have tried to put on the photos in the Angel Flickr Group, but I couldn’t manage it).
I now hope that no more angels are without a gift for them.
Now that I've over and done with my " impossible mission " (or almost), I can finally have fun with your Summer Mystery Quilt.
BUT, we do still have two very sad angels whose halo’s were intact but they haven't received anything back. So if you had a wonderful experience and have something you could share to help then Monika and Nicole, Vickie and Jane would love to feel loved also..
